Has the Riemann Hypothesis Been Proved?

| Comments

Tomorrow could be an exciting moment in the history of maths. Sir Michael Atiyah is presenting a proof of the Riemann Hypothesis at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum which will be available on their youtube channel. There is a good angle by Ken Regan on the Gödel’s Lost Letter blog.

The Riemann Hypothesis is one of the most important unsolved problems in mathematics and the subject of one of my favourite books about maths: Prime Obsession.

A few years ago in Paris, I had the pleasure of seeing Sir Michael speak. He spoke so cheerfully about life and mathematics. There is a great interview with him on the Web of Stories YouTube channel.
